first_imgJust as we thought, Apple announced a new line of products today, including new MacBook Airs, Mac minis, and the long-awaited OS X Lion which will be pre-installed on both lines. The company also surprised us with a Thunderbolt Display.Each product has a lot to offer, but what we’re really curious about is which, if any, of the products will you be buying? Scroll down to vote in our poll below!AdChoices广告Mac OS X 10.7 Lion To start with, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, an OS we’ve been waiting for since August of 2009, is finally available today via the Mac App Store. It has more than 250 new features including Multi-Touch gestures, and system-wide support for full-screen apps. It also features Mission Control, which is a new way to view everything running on your Mac, and LaunchPad, which is a new home screen for all your apps. Lion is available for $29.99, but can be run on up to five machines as long as they all use the same Apple ID.MacBook AirsThe MacBook Air will have many of the features we originally thought it would: backlit keyboard, high-speed Thunderbolt I/O technology, and Intel Core i5 and Core i7 dual-core processors. Apple says it’s twice as fast as the previous generation of MacBook Airs. The new Airs come in 11-inch and 13-inch models and feature Intel HD Grapics 3000 and up to 4GB of faster 1333 MHz memory. Of course, they’ll run the above mentioned Lion OS. The Airs start at $999.Mac miniThe Mac mini hasn’t seen a refresh since last June. It may look similar to the original model, but the new version gets rid of the Core 2 Duo chipset and replaces it with a Sandy Bridge CPU. There are also three Thunderbolt ports. The base model, starting at $599, features a 2.3 GHz Core i5 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. Apple also released an update to its server models which boasts a 2.0 GHz Core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM and two 500GB hard drives instead of an optical drive. This will run you $999.Thunderbolt DisplayThe 27-inch Thunderbolt Display is an Apple first. Apple’s marketing it as the world’s first display with Thunderbolt I/O technology. It has three built-in USB 3.0 ports, a Thunderbolt port, a FireWire 800 port, and an Ethernet port. Apple says it’s the “ultimate docking station for your Mac notebook.” It has a 16:9 edge-to-edge glass design and uses IPS technology for a 178-degree viewing angle. Any Thunderbolt-enabled Mac notebook can dock with the display. Of course, the Mac mini can be used with it as well. Apple’s also boasting about the front of the Thunderbolt Display which features a FaceTime HD camera. It’s available for $999.99.[poll id=”11″]last_img
